When you take a look around your home, what do you see? Is your color palette simple and understated? Do you gravitate to bright colors? Or, do you love to mix it up and add some bright pops of color to your decor?
Dylan Lauren said, “I’ll offset neutral shades with bright colors. It helps me stand out without looking cartoonish.” Accent colors are a great way to add a splash of brightness to your decor. They’re an excellent way to push the boundaries of what might be your typical color palette. If you’re considering adding an accent color to your design style, it might be time to pick something bold and unusual.
And, while people often talk about painting an accent wall in their home to showcase a bold color, it doesn’t need to be an entire wall. You can choose accessories in your chosen color and make a statement. Not sure which color to choose? Consider one of these.
- Hot Pink: Hot pink is a great color to pair with black, white, gray, and navy blue. And, this year with the neon trend increasing in popularity, you can find hot pink home decor in lots of places. Here are a few hot pink accessories that may work for you:
- Lime Green: Lime green is another unique accent color that is trending right now due to the return of neon in popularity. Lime green goes well with black, pink, white, brown, yellow, and other shades of green. And, while you may think that lime green might overpower your decor, because it’s still in the green family, it tends to have a calming effect on your space. Check out a few of these lime green pieces:
- Teal: Teal is a gorgeous color and often underused when it comes to interior design, but you shouldn’t shy away from it. It goes well with tan, black, gray, pink, white, and chartreuse. While you may feel that teal has a decidedly “beach” or “boho” vibe to it, it really can be used well with more traditional or contemporary furnishings.
- Orange: When you think of orange as an accent color for your home, you may think back to pictures of some dreadful 70’s decor. But orange has come a long way and is bright and cheery and combines well with white, yellow, red, gray, brown, and navy. Don’t be afraid to give it a try in your home. Here are some gorgeous orange pieces that would look great:
Are you ready to bring a pop of color to your home? Which accent color are you drawn to? If you’re not sure you’re ready to bring a bright color to your living room, think about starting small. Perhaps use one of these colors in a bathroom or on your porch or patio. You’ll be surprised by how much a little color can change the look of a room.
